Music in Other Languages Films, music, TV

The majority of the music I listen to is actually in languages I can't even begin to understand. Is anyone else like this? I know most people think I'm weird for it, but to me lyrics don't really matter all that much when it comes to whether I'll enjoy a song or not.

I do listen to a lot of music in english though because sometimes it's nice to understand what I'm hearing. But also, I think music in foreign languages helps a lot if you want to learn a new language.

i do agree with u.
i like japanese music though i can't understand the lyric.
i love koda kumi~^^

music is half beat half lyrics...or maybe that isn't music.

I like to listen french and italian music, couse i like the language.. i dont understand much of it, but it sounds nice.. :)

I think that sometimes it's better to don't understand the song's lyrics because... usually it's nonsensical or ridiculous ... And sometimes there is a bit perverse meaning so... But it happens that sometimes there is a real meaning in the lyrics... But if you sing... I dunno... For Exemple, [Je ne veux pas travailler -Edith Piaf / Pink Martini] in France, some poeple will find this funny because the lyrics of this song are totally ... Let me translate them and... You'll understand my point of view....

Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage My Room is shaped like a cage
Le soleil passe son bras par la fenêtre the sun put his arm through the window
Les chasseurs à ma porte Hunters at my door
Comme des petits soldats Like little soldiers
Qui veulent me prendre Whom want to take me

Je ne veux pas travailler I don't want to work
Je ne veux pas déjeuner I don't want to have lunch
Je veux seulement oublier I just want to forget myself
Et puis je fume And I smoke!

No meanings, but poeple like this song because it's just popular... But if they understand the lyrics... Music is Music and poetry is poetry

same with me..
i listen to Japanese and Korean music ^^
and i dont understand anything that they are saying^^

It's always interesting to listen musics from different country of the world, although we can't always understand lyrics... It's a good occasion to go to see lyrics, in the goal to understand more a song! But if we can't understand the lyrics in a song, their are not less important!
I like to learn some songs in others langages than english, because this allow to discover new opinions, a new way of think!

music is a common language, that's why!:))

I like to listen to other language too!
I love korean music . but i actually try to understand them cuz im a singer

i thought i was the only one to listen to such music ^^ even if i mostly listen to music with french and english lyrics, i like discovering new things so i don't care if i don't understand the lyrics! When i really like a song i just look for the lyrics on the internet !
